Kyle Schwarber With The Chicago Cubs
The Chicago Cubs selected Schwarber in the first round, fourth overall, at the 2014 Major League Baseball draft. On June 11th, he signed.
MLB.com analyst Bernie Pleskoff described Schwarber as a “game-changing” power bat when he was picked.
Pleskoff, on the other hand, criticized his baserunning and fielding abilities, saying, “Schwarber is sluggish on the bases and slow defensively.”
In his draft report, ESPN’s Keith Law expressed a similar perspective, saying, “Schwarber might have the rawest power of any talent in the class.”
The MLB Scouting Bureau compared Schwarber’s swinging mechanics to Jeff Bagwell’s and projected him to play a role similar to Matt Stairs in two pre-draft scouting reports.
Three days later, he made his professional debut, going 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI for the Boise Hawks.
Before the end of the season, the Cubs advanced him to the Class A Midwest League’s Kane County Cougars and the Class A-Advanced Florida State League’s Daytona Cubs.
He hit .344/.428/.634 with 18 home runs, 53 RBI, and 18 doubles in 72 games with the three teams combined.
Schwarber started 2015 with the Southern League’s Double-A Tennessee Smokies. He hit a go-ahead two-run triple for Team USA in the All-Star Futures Game in July 2015, earning him MVP honors.
On June 16, 2015, the Cubs elevated Schwarber to the major leagues as a designated hitter for six games during interleague play.
In the eighth inning against the Cleveland Indians at Wrigley Field, Schwarber made his major league debut as a position player, replacing ejected starting catcher Miguel Montero.
After the Cubs and Indians both headed to Cleveland the next night, he collected four hits in five at-bats with two RBI and six total bases as a designated hitter.
After the six-game stint, the Cubs assigned Schwarber to the Triple-A Iowa Cubs of the Pacific Coast League.
